Anonymous asked: The strangest thing. I broke up with my boyfriend and my UC which was really bad, is hardly noticeable anymore. Its weird how badly stress affected my condtion.

Yes, I agree. Stress definitely played a HUGE role in your UC and your overall Heath. I applaud your break up because I know you will find someone that doesn’t provide stress in your life… Someone who will encourage you and support you while you manage your IBD. Thanks for the comment, it will help others realize unnecessary stress that they can cut out of their life to live a healthier life with UC !

Thanksgiving Tips

Thanksgiving can be tough for IBD’ers on all kinds of levels. Here are some helpful tips to get you through the fun.

1.) Offer to bring your own side dish and dessert. (That way you are sure you can eat at least one thing!)

2.) Offer to help cook! You’ll learn some new skills, and you’ll know exactly what is in the dish.

3.) Don’t constantly talk about what you can’t eat on the table. Be grateful you have friends and family to share the day with. Plus, IBD isn’t their fault.

4.) Don’t eat what you’re not supposed to. (If our embarrassed, here is my super secret: I put a small amount of food on my plate and move it around to the edges to look like I ate it. Trust me it works! )

5.) Keep a special holiday food journal. This way you can know what you can and can’t eat over time.

6.) Bring extra underwater just in case. You don’t know what is in food and how you’ll react.

7.) Know where the bathroom is.

8.) Bring your meds just in case if you’re not sure when you’ll be coming home.

9.) Leave early in case you have to make “pit stops” (bathroom breaks) driving to your destination.

10.) Enjoy yourself. After all, everyone has a lot to be thankful for! :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

This is a tough holiday, especially if your in a flare up, on prednisone or just am having a rough month. But it is still important to keep your head up and be thankful for the many blessings you do have in your life. Despite your health, think of your family, friends, job, school, or even your pet and be thankful for them.

Just remember, it could be worse. And if you’re at your worst, be thankful the only way you can go it up!

Such a sweet message. Glad to know this is helping someone! :)

Take that!

A few years ago, some doctors said that going to college was going to be difficult. And they were discouraging. The first year, I was hospitalized and had to take a leave of absence. But through the support of God, my family, and my friends, I have been successful.

And today, was the first day of my senior year.

All I have to say is…
IN YOUR FACE!!!!
